Nashville, TN—August 2, 2011… Having toured extensively throughout the mid-west over the past three years, Kansas natives and Sparrow Records’ band Samestate are set to play across the south as a part of the “So Long Summer” tour. Joining Samestate will be up-and-coming band Caleb, founded by songwriter/frontman Caleb Chapman and drummer Will Chapman, the sons of GRAMMY ® Award winning artist Steven Curtis Chapman.

“We are so excited to join Caleb on the “So Long Summer” Tour,” vocalist Dalton Diehl said. “Our main goal is to share the message of hope and the love of Christ with the people we meet each night. Caleb is an awesome band with great music and a similar heart for ministry. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to share the stage with them!”

Since their inception in 2009, Samestate has been touring and working with producers such as Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Third Day, Seabird) and Brandon Paddock (Leeland, Abandon Kansas, Queens Club) to develop their alternative rock sound. Earlier this summer, the band released their debut Sparrow Records EP, currently available on iTunes ®, and is finalizing the details on their first full-length album, The Alignment, set to release in early 2012.

The tour will consist of shows in eight markets throughout the south beginning August 16 in Grovetown, Georgia and wrapping up in St. Petersburg, Florida on August 28. See full list of tour dates below.
